The Hermitage featuring leaping salmon

Last summer we took a trip to the Hermitage near Dunkeld, Perthshire, and had the luck of seeing some salmon trying to make their way up the waterfall. Most of the close ups were captured on a 70-200mm lens which was pointing down at the falls from above.

POW Camp and Loch

  Ian let us go out for a photo shoot at last. Wasn’t exactly great weather but we headed out anyway. Ended up at Cultybraggon camp in Comrie again (fabulous place), this is an old POW and army training camp. The place had been secured more than last time we were there (due to some […]

Stars over POW camp

It’s that time of year when we go out more at night than during the day as the days are short and the skies are beautiful. I had the frankly ingenious idea of going back to Cultybraggon POW camp at Comrie. Although it was quite chilly it was well worth it, the old huts and […]

Pitlochry Dam and a creepy tunnel

A few of us set off to Pitlochry for some evening shooting a wee while back. There wasn’t a lot to get our photographic teeth into and Ian ended up recording and editing a video short using Sarah and Martyn as “actors”. You can view the vid and Ian’s few images below. a>   A […]

Waterfalls, Glens and Sunsets

  Me and Ian went for a a wee jaunt the other day. We had no real idea where to go and as I was still suffering a bit from a particularly random and weird perceptional migraine (including inability to control volume, losing words and replacing them with ‘third’ and pixelated vision!) I really wasn’t […]

St Andrews, Balvaird and a hill in Fife

 Was lucky enough to get out twice over the 2 nice days we had, when it didn’t chuck it down. First was an evening shoot at St Andrews, we were heading for Lindores Loch, but in classic Sarah style I couldn’t remember how to actually get there and we couldn’t find it!  But all worked […]

Finlarig Castle Ruins

Sarah and I jumped in the car and headed to Killin today to visit the ruin of Finlarig Castle. Armed to the teeth with our infrared filters, the sky was in perfect condition with white fluffy clouds and deep blue skies for some IR work. Shooting at iso 100 and around f.7 we were hitting […]

Kinnoull Hill Sunset and Light Painting

April has continued to be wet and windy and a proper challenge for photography. We had a wee trip to Broughty Ferry last week and could barely take a shot through all the wind and driving rain. However things like that don’t stop us and we have taken some crackers as a result (we’ve also […]

Glen Lednock photos and video

Sarah and I had a rare shoot with just the two of us (plus my youngest sprog) and decided that driving up Glen Lednock was probably a good idea. It was sunny, and we were right! The skies were blue as far as the eye could see and it was actually warm enough to remove […]

Rumbling Bridge

 Very Rudely Ian decided to have a life away from photography so couldn’t  join me on my little outing. But fear not I took a newbie with me instead, just not the same by myself and without someone to help me if I get stuck somewhere. Though think I’m getting a bit old and fearful, […]

Proper Winter

At last proper winter with proper snow, WooHoo! Unfortunately had to watch most of through a window at nighttime due to Nightshift, but did manage to get out a bit.  Before my nights I managed to get out and about with Ian and Mike to the hermitage on a snowy night. None of us remembered a […]

Cultybraggan POW Camp, Comrie

Sarah, Darryl (Baked Tatties Photography) and I headed off towards Crieff on a very foggy morning in Perthshire. Our destination: Cultybraggan – once a POW camp in WW2, was turned into an Army Training camp and is now… well we’re not too sure, but Wikipedia says this: The camp ceased to be used by the […]
